astonishing open letter from john franklin stevens. he has down syndrome and is a global messenger for the special olympics. i'm pleased to have him live with me tonight along with the ceo of special olympics. welcome to you both. frank, let me start with you. i found your speech this morning that you wrote was extremely moving. you heard ann coulter there trying to insist that the word retard is not offensive. what was your reaction to that? >> well, the word retard is offensive and should not be -- should not be a symbol for someone who is dumb and shallow. they wanted to use me as a symbol, me as a symbol someone who fights adversity. >> and, tim, when you heard her getting very agitated about it, and insisted she would carry on using the word, no worse than moron, imbecile, creton, whatever. i think retard, in particular, has been adopted by people who want to be offensive to people with disability, more than any of the other words, therefore, has a special significance that people are aware of. >> i think the question isn't which word is worse. i think the reason so many peopl

politicization of this. ambassador stevens' father, thought his death was being politicized and democrats are calling it a witch hunt. and i think what the secretary wanted to do, not only take the heat off the white house as president obama goes into this debate, but also to kind of refocus people and say, listen, you definitely need to find out what happened here. but we also need to make sure that it never happens again and that's where she is focused right now. i asked her about the kind of changing story that the white house had initially talking about spontaneous protests that led to this attack and changed the story, as you know. let's take a listen to what she said to me about intelligence and how that's being politicized. >> everyone who spoke -- >> bad intelligence. >> well, everyone who spoke tried to give the information that they had. as time has gone on, the information has changed, we've gotten more detail. but that's not surprising. that always happens. and what i want to avoid is some kind of political gotcha or blame game going on. >> and, again, what she is saying, ashl

other asset. >> we're agreeing on this point. i want to ask steven moore something here. i think all three of us -- there are four ever us. forget my math. all four of us agree on this haut. why is it that's not why mitt romney says he can create 12 million jobs over four years. he talks almost exclusively about lowering taxes to spur job growth. i have a suspicion you actually agree with him on that. >> i know you've been skeptical of that number. i think it's very achieve scrabble. as you noted with that chart that you were showing even though we have had 5 million new jobs over the last four years, do you realize we're still about 4 million jobs short of where we were in 2007. so we still have a lot of ground to be made up. in fact we should be growing the labor force and employment by about double the rate that we are. if we pick up the pace we should be at and keep that for four years i really do believe 12 million jobs is achievable. my goodness we did that in the 1980s under a republican president, ronald reagan and a democratic president bill clinton. >> and gdp was 4.8%. 4.5

stevens' own father said today this shouldn't be a political issue. this should be an issue we get to the bottom of for our investigation. we should bring those that did this to justice. >> the deaths are incredibly tragic to everyone in america. i assume you would believe also for the romney campaign, but the question here, you know, when you look at it that they're driving at -- the republican side is driving at is why wasn't there more security, and more to the point, why was there so much bad information coming out about what happened? >> well, look, again, let me go back to this sworn testimony that was given at the hearing. those at the state department said that the very thing that everybody has been saying at every moment in this great tragedy has been the best information that we have when we have it available. we're learning stuff each and every day about what happened. that's what an investigation is supposed to do. let me ask you this. let's figure out what happened, but, you know what, we don't need wing-tipped cowboys or shoot from the hip diplomacy and when mitt romney

house than criticized for its response to the attack that killed ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. senator corker has been one of those demanding answers and he's "outfront" tonight. senator, good to see you again. you heard leon panetta giving a nuanced answer as to why he made the decisions that he made, and general ham made. does that answer satisfy you? >> well, there was some confusion. i know the folks we had in tripoli had to actually charter a civilian flight to get up to benghazi. they had to be led with a militia and a circuitous route that were anti-american to finally get to the benghazi consulate. so i actually am somewhat sympathetic to the military action. i'm totally unsympathetic to what the white house knew at that time. i know the white house knew in real-time this was a terrorist attack. and i just am very disappointed at the continual misleading and the fact that the administration has used this as a -- they have turned it into a political issue by doing what they did. >> now, let me ask you, because secretary of state hillary clinton, as you k
